QUOTABLE – Head Coach Natalie Dreyer
"It was a great team effort. This is a special group, a group that leaves everything on the field. It is a fun group to be a part of. I told the girls from the beginning to take it day by day. It is one of our goals to be undefeated at home this season. We can't become content. We have a very good Howard Payne team coming in and then Texas Dallas the following match."
